About Us

Shanceler Terry (C.E.O.) began working in the after school arena in 1999 when most after school programs were first brought to the table for many schools across America. Over the past 9 years, Mrs. Terry has developed and coordinated several after school programs throughout the Houston area. She has served in the role of teacher, lead teacher for the after school program, full time coordinator and project coordinator – overseeing several sites. Having served in these roles, she has taken the knowledge she has learned as a result from over the years and applied it to developing programs that students, teachers and parents can actively enjoy. “Students sit at a desk all day – after school is a time to kick off your shoes – grab a comfy spot and play while learning. Teachers can be themselves and show another side of their personality by engaging in relationship building activities and lessons that go beyond the bell to bell instruction during the day,” says Terry. As s graduate from The University of Tulsa, Shanceler Terry has a bachelors in Secondary education as well as a bachelors in English. An experienced, certified grant writer, Mrs. Terry brings to TXBOL a broader perspective and skill set to empower communities and youth programs through grant writing, training and non-profit establishment.

How we are different...

Texas Beacon of Light Outreach brings to each program nearly ten years of experience - not just in one area of after school - but in every area (role) possible. Therefore, we can cater to each stakeholder in a unique way that meets their needs. We not only provide services for the students, but the coordinator as well. Having experience as teachers and coordinators at the same time, we know the challenges presented - at times making a choice between their classroom or the program. Texas Beacon of Light Outreach comes along side the coordinator to not just provide classes - but to provide a comprehensive service which includes helping PLAN AND DESIGN your program, ASSESSING YOUR PROGRAM, HELPING RECRUIT AND EVEN PAY after school staff. We go the extra mile to be sure OUR children have EVERYTHING they need - including a WELL BALANCED COORDINATOR - ready to meet their needs.
